I am looking to buy a few cables and of course mixed in the results I notice a few Monster brand cables priced 4x-10x higher than everything else and I can’t help but admire the giant swinging balls of this company.
I mean, I get that sometimes people will pay more for what they think of as a “quality” brand if it fits in with their self-image. Although it’s vain, I can sort of understand this with cars, clothes, etc… but a friggin’ cable? Something that is going to spend its entire life coiled up in a corner behind your computer or TV somewhere? People actually pay $150 for one of those when they can get the same exact thing for $15 from Target? Do they really think they are getting a more quality product somehow?
Too mild for the Pit, but seriously, WTF?
